Thanks for a Great 2014

First & foremost, I would like to thank you all for your support in what proved to be a most excellent 2014.

The weather was superb and allowed us to grow the business as vibrantly as the plants we tended. Alongside the gardens we traditionally look after, there have been new Design Commissions, a large scale-restoration and welcome returns to see old friends.

Some internal changes – so you have more of my time

The business has doubled in size – we are now 12-strong. Its going to be extremely busy and that is probably why I need to send out my thoughts for your consideration.

Keep it Simple

So here goes – these are my Gardening resolutions for 2015:

Our whole aim for 2015 is to “keep it simple” and consolidate. We have a full order book; which means we are going to focus upon getting the business to function as well & smoothly as I possibly can.

Last year I had a health scare and realised my Health is my Wealth. After getting the all clear in December, I wish to spend more time in the gardens I love & care so passionately about. The week-to-week running of the business will now be undertaken by new member, Kirsty Cruickshank.

For all matters relating to your account (if you have one) please initially contact For all other matters please contact me via my new e-mail address:

Graduate Gardeners & Maggie’s Centre

We also have an excellent core of graduate gardeners now & I hope to advance them into the fully-fledged role of the “Head Gardener”. They in-turn will train the next intern of talented gardening graduates.

Finally, for my own development, I will be personally responsible for the creation of a New Garden on the site of an old Quarry near Sunderland, the continued Development of the Maggie’s Centre for Cancer sufferers in Newcastle and an on-going restoration of a Coastal Garden in Yorkshire.
